Raising our children is one of the most important things that we will ever do in life. How they turn out, how life goes for them, whether they experience joy and happiness because of their inner strength and resources, or struggle with life because of inadequate coping skills is largely in our hands. Many adults have had hundreds, if not thousands of hours of training for their profession, yet when we become parents there is virtually no training available for what most people agree is one of the most important jobs on the planet: being a parent.

Family therapy looks at the entire family system—parents, children, extended family members—to identify strengths and problematic behaviours. I collaborate with families on strategies for utilizing their own capabilities for resolving problems, and on developing effective communication and problem-solving skills for preventing conflicts. I specialize in working with families of teenagers, which is an age that can be challenging for both the teenagers and their parents.

All families develop their own unique 'dance' that is hard to discern when you are a participant. The dance steps started in our own family of origin and get recreated in our current families. Often there is an 'identified patient' that acts out what isn't processed within the family system. By entering the family system as a professional attuned to what healthy dynamics look like, I can help transform a limping, depleting family system into one that has vitality and encourages each family member to thrive and grow.

Sometimes getting along at home can be difficult. Perhaps there is someone in your family making bad choices and it is hurting your heart. Or maybe it is the day-to-day miscommunications and conflict that causes so much stress. On one hand, family squabbles are a normal part of living together. On the other hand, they can be very difficult and painful. Please don't wait one more day. Family therapy or family counseling can help. And you can even if you come in by yourself if your family won't come in with you. We'd like to see if we can help you make it better.

In my ten years of experience, I have been fortunate to work with many families in treatment. Studies have shown that a supportive adult in a child/teens life can make a huge difference in the outcomes of treatment. When I work with minors (11 and below) having the parent(s) involved in treatment is a necessity. When I work with a teen or someone who is 12 years and up, I work closely with parent(s) but ensure confidentiality,safety, and trust between the therapist and teen. If teen deems appropriate my aim is to always include parent in treatment as much as possible. I also offer individual session to teen parents and this can be a supportive parenting service without teen present.

Families are the fundamental unit of our society. Healthy families make our world better. I try to balance the needs of the individual with the need for a stable and happy family. It is critical that all voices be heard, including children who do not have the authority of a parent, but whose voice, feelings and behaviors are always some kind of barometer about what is going on in the family. Finding ways to support multiple needs while preserving the family's stability is what I specialize in. While compromise can be important, I feel it is important to help families find ways where all basic needs can be met. You will learn to be open and communicate more in your family work with me.

I believe that families have written and unwritten rules that allow that family to function. And sometimes, there is a breakdown in how the family functions whether from a death in the family, a move, a member of the family not wanting to do her/his "job" or any other number of things. Meeting as a family can allow everyone to have a chance to speak and avoid some of the he said/she said that goes around. If you believe you and your family could benefit from some assistance and guidance, please call me at 714-432-9856.

Family counseling is helpful with problems setting limits with children, dealing with grief, divorce, loss that can cause behavior problems, school issues, or family problems. Sometimes parents want help with boundaries for teenagers with anger issues, reblelliousness or entitlement problems. In some cases family therapy involves young adults who need support building an indepentent lifestyle and recovery from drugs or alcohol. Family therapy helps you learn how to help without enabling!

Each person in a family has a voice and each person in a family has an impact. I am careful to make certain that the family looks at all the members and how they all interact as a family unit. It is important that each member is respected. We look at how the family is not in a state of health due to choices that the family is making. We work together toward connection, understanding, and growth for all memebers. Unhealthy alliances and interactions are acknowledged.

Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce, or the death of a loved one. In addition, it can be effective in treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents. Family counseling aims to promote understanding and collaboration among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals.

Therapy focuses on the patterns of interaction between family members, and emphasizes improved communication and connection as an important factor to create change. Involving various family members in treatment helps to benefit so that everyone has a similar understanding of the issues within the relationships, and expectations of others. The most important factor within those connections is personal accountability so that each member is taking responsibility for any actions they cause to the system, versus being focused on how other members may have hurt them.
